At Dermatology Consultants, our skin doctors strive to provide you with healthy, beautiful skin. We know that while the health of your skin is a priority, the aesthetics are of great importance as well—providing you with invaluable confidence in your appearance. As such, our skin doctors offer a variety of cosmetic dermatology options at our Lynchburg, VA office.

Because each type of skin cancer has a different look, effect, and treatment, it is important to be aware of changes in your body. Alert your doctor right away if you notice unusual changes in the size and shape of spots on your body, the coloration of your skin, or the sensitivity and comfort of your body. Time is of the essence when it comes to treatment of cancer. If caught early, our dermatologists can successfully treat many forms of skin cancer.

BroadBand Light (BBL)

Dermatology Consultants is pleased to offer the Sciton BroadBand Light (BBL) system. This cosmetic dermatology treatment provides non-abrasive and non-invasive rejuvenation of your skin. BBL delivers light energy into the skin which gently heats the upper layers and stimulates skin cells to regenerate. This process helps restore skin to its natural beauty, making it clear, smooth, vibrant and youthful. The Sciton Forever Young BBL system sets new standards in treating freckles, age and sun spots, facial redness and veins, rosacea, and combating the signs of aging skin.

Collagen P.I.N. Induction Therapy (Microneedling)

Dermatology Consultants is pleased to offer Collagen P.I.N. Induction Therapy. Collagen P.I.N. is a Percutaneous Induction Therapeutic Micro-Needling Device that opens up a whole new horizon to skin treatments. Collagen P.I.N. is a minimally invasive option for skin rejuvenation. As our skin ages, our collagen production naturally slows down. Microneedling produces results through the stimulation of growth factors and collagen, thereby promoting new skin cells to surface. After a microneedling treatment, skin becomes smoother and fuller, reducing the appearance of scars, lines, pigment and wrinkles, especially crow’s feet and wrinkles around the mouth. Microneedling is considered a “no downtime” treatment. The healing process is quick and painless.

BLU-U

BLU-U Blue Light Photodynamic Therapy is used in conjunction with a Levulan Kerastick to treat minimally to moderately thick actinic keratoses on the face or scalp (otherwise known as “sun spots”). The BLU-U is also a non-drug therapy for moderate acne. The therapy utilizes a unique, specially designed blue light that kills the P. acnes bacteria in your skin. BLU-U acne treatments are gentle and typically well tolerated by patients.

Phototherapy Treatment

At Dermatology Consultants, our skin doctors offer UVB light phototherapy as a means to treat psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema, and other light responsive diseases. Phototherapy, or light therapy, involves exposing the skin to ultraviolet light on a regular basis under the medical supervision of your skin doctor. This cosmetic dermatology treatment is done in our Lynchburg, VA office with a Daavlin phototherapy unit.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is often referred to as spider vein treatment. Spider veins are small clusters of red, blue, or purple veins that appear on the thighs, calves, and ankles. For some, these afflictions can first become noticeable at a young age, while for others they not appear until much later. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a specially formulated solution into each affected vein, causing the vein to collapse and fade. This procedure may require multiple treatments at our Lynchburg, VA office.

Patch Testing

A patch test is a method our Lynchburg, VA skin doctors use to determine whether a specific substance causes allergic inflammation of a patient’s skin.
